“When Ms. Boulé is onstage, it’s hard to take your eyes off of her…Lucky for us she has been making a new solo, ‘WONDER,’ presented by Issue Project Room at the Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew.”– The New York Times, Siobhan Burke
‘White’ contains multitudes of meaning and purpose that takes days to metabolize. Perhaps this is the beginning of much more to come—a very promising statement in Boulé’s ever-deepening choreographic practice.” – The Brooklyn Rail, Cassie Peterson
“Michelle Boulé and her dancing partners used sweeping limbs, subtle gestures, and moments of irony in ‘White’ to paint an echoing, resonant work.” - The Dance View Times, Martha Sherman
